President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca inaugurated the system of used water treatment, known as grey-water, at the Helen Keller resources centre in Qrendi. She said that the system added another level in water benefits carried out at the centre where disabled students attend.
President Coleiro Preca added that through this system, costs will be reduced for water volume used, among others, for jacuzzi for the therapy of children and youths at the centre. She stated that the grey-water treatment is an excellent example of water conservation which meets the United Nations’ sustainable development targets.
The installation of the system at the Helen Keller centre is part of the ‘Alter Aqua’ programme launched five years ago by the Coca-Cola Foundation aimed at promoting the non-conventional use of water.
